    OK, I received the toy model set from Revell - Leonardo's giant crossbow. It took me like an hour to complete it!<br><br>It is useless as a crossbow, but it does give me a feeling for the dimensions...<br><br><br><br><br><img src="http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/5109/balestia4.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://img51.imageshack.us/img51/2900/balestia3.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://img849.imageshack.us/img849/8475/balestia2.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><img src="http://img855.imageshack.us/img855/2149/balestia1.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    Does it function? or is it just a model? Either way its a pretty neat model from a great mind.

    i think it´s a little bit poor, that those layers of wood in that arms are just lasered instead of actually doing it with few thin woodplanks.<br>overall a bit poor looking for that price...well it´s just revell, you can´t expect more i guess.

    Yes, it is rather poor. I was hoping for a better quality, too.

    I think you can do it much better. Try it and put every part of it a little bigger and cut it out of multiplex. Think that would work for a little model.

    Did this all come in one kit or was it one of those that you have to collect weekly issues?

    Those are special Leonardo editions made by Revell.<br>They also have the Airscrew, kind of first Helicopter, and a swinging bridge.<br><br>All of those models are made from lasercut wood.<br><br>btw, do you need glue for that or do you simply stick them together?
